Rhombus, 2014, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Fusion
O’s Notes: Alive is the follow-up to composer/guitarist Andy Waddell’s debut Sunset to 7. He plays in unison with saxophonist Tom Catenzaro on most of the melodies. Tom is the only artist returning from the debut. Josh Nelson (p), Dan Lutz (b) and Aaron McClendon (d) are the newcomers. They fit right in playing mostly upbeat selections that will delight most smooth jazz and fusion fans. They take a breather on “A New Day” and “Late Night”, both relaxed tempo tunes that balance a very engaging session. Waddell is on the right track!
